MURDER HOBO ALL INN AT DRAGONS SHAFT #1 CVR A LYNCH (MR)

(W) Joseph Schmalke (A/CA) Jason Lynch
Murder Hobo is back with more wild and deadly tales! At a local tavern, brave warriors in The Lands of High Adventure are becoming more aware of several "heroes" who are not what they seem. While sharing war stories, these adventurers realize they've each invited into their parties rogue agents who put them directly in harm's way, often resulting in dead heroes and stolen treasure. We meet three more Murder Hobos: a hot-headed half-demon, a poo-flinging Orc, and an invisible fishman. These agents of Chaos have different methods, but share the same goal, satiating their sordid desires by drinking, drugging, whoring… and keeping all the loot for themselves.

Led by the drunkard Richard McCoy – the hero once known as Legend – the McCoys try to find normalcy in a world that is just slivers of what it once was. As the dust finally begins to settle, the dark force that looked to conquer the world returns to finish the job it started. Can Legend remain sober enough to put this mysterious force down once and for all?
